In July 2019, CMC headed to Tuscany, Italy to participate in the Festival Orchestre Giovanili. CMC students and staff collaborated with the Apulian Youth Symphony Orchestra, from Puglia, Italy, performing Holst’s Mars, the Bringer of War, Marquez’s Danzon No. 2, and Borodin’s Polovetsian Dances, in Montecatini Terme and Florence. Chamber music concerts performed by CMC students and staff followed in the Tuscany cities of Perugia and San Gimignano.
In August 2017 we embarked on our first international cultural exchange. Our students collaborated with Swiss youth orchestra, il mosaico, in Wattwil, Switzerland for a series of concerts throughout Switzerland. In May 2018 il mosaico visited New York City, culminating in a run of concerts with CMC orchestras. Concert repertoire included Copland's Billy the Kid, Brahms' Piano Concerto No. 1, and Dvorak's Symphony No. 9 "From the New World."
Stay tuned for our next adventure!
